There are four ways you can add Eric.ai into your meeting.
1. Auto Join settings (Recommended)
The Auto Join settings offer a flexible and efficient way to include Eric.ai in your meetings.
To reach these settings, go to Settings > Default meeting settings. Here, you can adjust the way Eric.ai will auto-join your meetings:
a) Automatically join upcoming meetings in your calendar:
When this setting is enabled and your calendar is integrated, Eric.ai will automatically join all new meetings in your calendar where you are the ‘organizer’. Once your upcoming meetings start, Eric.ai will enter the lobby and wait to be admitted.
Please note, if Auto Join is disabled, it means that any changes made in your calendar software (e.g. adding, updating or deleting an event) will not update in Eric.ai.
b) Join upcoming meetings that Eric.ai is invited to by email:
If this option is enabled, Eric.ai will auto-join all future meetings you organize where you have added ‘[email protected]’ as an invitee in the event in your calendar software. Once your upcoming meetings start, Eric.ai will enter the lobby and wait to be admitted.
Any updates you make to meetings that include ‘[email protected]’ as an invitee in your calendar software will also be shown in your My Meetings section.
2. Invite Eric.ai in your calendar event
You can add Eric.ai to your meeting in exactly the same way you invite your colleagues. Simply add ‘[email protected]’ as an attendee to your meeting.
Once your calendar invite is sent you will receive an acceptance email from Eric.ai.
If Eric.ai cannot accept your meeting request, you will receive an email outlining any issues. Below are some scenarios where Eric.ai may not be able to accept your invitation:
Eric.ai is not able to access a meeting joining URL for the meeting
Eric.ai does not understand who the meeting invitation is sent from
3. Paste the joining URL into Eric.ai
If your meeting is not scheduled in advance or you forgot to invite Eric.ai you can quickly invite from your account. In the left menu you can click the Invite button.
Once you click this button you will see a pop-up that asks for the Invitation URL. Please type or paste your meeting URL in this box and then click the "Invite Eric.ai to meeting" button. Eric.ai will join your live meeting and create a new meeting page automatically.
4. Invite Eric.ai from the Microsoft Teams sidebar
If you open the Eric.ai sidebar in your meeting in Microsoft Teams and the meeting is not recognised already by Eric.ai you can ask Eric.ai to join right then.
